I agree with Greg. That bolt is a 6mm. If you break off a small easy out in there, your screwed. If there's not enough left to weld on a nut, try drilling it out. Be very carefull to get the hole in the center. Lay it on it's side and go slow. If you have a reverse twist drill bit, sometimes the bit will unscrew it as you drill. Use progressively larger bits untill you get very close to the alloy, then try a 6x1 mm tap. Sometimes the little bit that's left will come out. Be careful, easy outs and taps are brittle. Big trouble if it breaks off. If all else fails, you can get it tig welded, and redrill and tap.
